*On the SBD:MR their were numerous pops in the left channel & some in the
right channel. These errors sound like equipment problems on the stage,
but I cannot be certain of its origin.
*These errors & lineage from DAT were corrected (almost perfectly) as
*GoodBear DAT @ 48kHZ > Sony DAT deck PCM-R300 > coaxial s/pdif > pentium II
350 mHz via Turtle Beach "Fiji" soundcard > CoolEdit > convert to 44.1kHz >
edit - zoom in real close on the errors & remove (BOTH channels w/o any
noticeable music loss for most of the errors) & lowered AUD volume levels
in CoolEdit > Smart & Friendly CDR SCSI drive > CD
*AUD patches were added in Morning Dew onward until the 1st 4 minutes of
Sugar Magnolia, prior to me receiving my DAT. The patches were seamless,
but the volume was a touch too high, so I lowered it just SLIGHTLY during
the AUD portions of Morning Dew only... Teddy Notes 10/1/2006: AUD lineage
from 6/2000 fix not remembered, but one can assume is from the AUD in
circulation at that time.

Dusborne matrixes are the current gold standard for this type of work; I'm a strong amateur-matrix skeptic overall, and find most of them unlistenable, but his mixes are reliably good to great and this is no exception.
I note for the record that this is NOT the debut of Let Me Sing Your Blues Away; that was just prior, at 9.8.73 Nassau.
The show itself is a fine to very good example from the era, perhaps the best from this tour, which I find rather uninspired for the year. I'm a big fan of '73 Dead overall, but the horns tour just doesn't do it for me. This show is pretty much the exception, and the next night to a lesser degree.

This is a gloriously atmospheric recording of a show that has tons of the X-factor. Novice listeners would need to be patient with it, so have it on with some time on your hands, and let it sink in. Classic show from the Golden Era of the Grateful Dead.

The Dead is like church to me. I wake up every morning and listen to a show and smoke a few bowls. Nothing prepares me for the day and fills me with the right kind of energy like they do. I never got to see a Dead show (I was born in 1988), but these shows on Archive have brought me into their magical world.
This show, in particular, is a wonderful church service - the horns are pitch perfect and this matrix captures them perfectly. This "Playing" is especially electric.

One of the best-mixed MTXs I've heard
It's also the first really hot show of the '73 fall tour. The ending jam is short but consists of a fine, fine Dark Star > Morning Dew. Also the first really good Sing Your Blues Away, and lots of other hot renditions.

Dusborne is my new hero of the matrix wizards. He must by a Phil Phreak like me since all of his matrices have loud signals and louder Phil! This is a fantastic combo of audience and soundboard. As far the music goes, the ‘Playin’ is one of my favorite ever. Weir’s work on ‘China Cat Sunflower’ at this time is great and this one is no exception. With this mix, the Martin Fiero stuff is a LOT more enjoyable. The ‘Dark Star’ is downright mystical. The 'Morning Dew' is a uncharacteristic bummer due to change in signal and Garcia’s guitar being completely out of tune. Despite his “sloppy” reputation, I’ve always regarded Garcia as the consummate professional guitar player and his efforts at tuning while starting the 'Dew' puts a grin on my face, to be sure. Five for the music and mix.

Seasons round, creatures great and small, up and down, as we rise and fall
Flowing, mind-altering, beautiful music from one of my favorite GD periods. It's been fun comparing "eras" lately, partly spurred on by Blair Jackson's blog post here: http://bit.ly/LqA2Nc
